Farmington Hills seeks ideas for new community center

As the design phase for the conversion of Harrison High School to a community center begins, Farmington Hills officials are asking residents to participate in the process.

Farmington Schools trustees earlier this year signed off on a $500,000 purchase price for the 240,000-square-foot building and grounds. The school is scheduled to close in June of 2019.
